Comrade V. D. Bonch-Bruyevich,

The State Publishers may be offended that I did not send Krzhizhanovsky’s pamphlet through them?[2] Perhaps I broke the rules? I was in a great hurry.

If it is inconvenient for you to settle the matter otherwise, would you send this note of mine to Comrade Vorovsky (I ask him to have a paper issued by the State Publishers ordering the speediest, by Sunday 1.II, publication of Krzhizhanovsky’s pamphlet at the 17th Print-shop, formerly Kushnerev’s, and I apologise for having sent the pamphlet direct to the press because I was in a great hurry).

Perhaps this has already been done? If not, it must be done. Give me your reply.



[1] On the envelope Lenin wrote: “V. D. Bonch-Bruyevich. ((If at home wait for an answer.)) (from Lenin) (to be signed for).”—Ed.

[2] This refers to G. M. Krzhizhanovsky’s pamphlet The Main Tasks of the Electrification of Russia. Lenin sent the manuscript of the pamphlet directly to the printers to have it published in time for the first session of the C.E.C., 7th convocation.
